Tis' the season!

Christmas break is coming quickly. The kiddos know that our routine has changed and they are feeling the effects of the crunch to get second quarter grade card testing completed. At our school, we participate in Positive Behavior Support (PBS). One of the things we adopted as a consequence for unacceptable behavior is the Kindergarten Think Sheet.  Since most Kindergarten students don't come to us knowing how to write, we've found this Think Sheet meets the needs of our writers and non-writers and it allows them to take responsibility for expressing their actions on paper. I have adapted it a little to be less specific to our school expectations so that others can use it, as well. I hope you find it useful!

Think Sheet

  1. I like the K Think Sheet a lot. Is it possible to add another feeling icon? Specifically, something related to feeling overly excited or antsy? Some of the more hyper children have these feeling coursing through them and get in trouble as a result of control problems. When I see an inattentive child with a tapping foot etc I know that behavior problems can quickly follow.
